Private Suite Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Private Suites are in essence private corporate hospitality boxes, situated in three of the four stands around the Principality Stadium. There are over 100 hospitality boxes in the stadium however most of the boxes are sold on an annual basis, nevertheless several boxes are still available for match-day hospitality. The suites offer good value considering their undoubted prestige and location, although the package offering is a little sparing.

Location

These Private Suites need to be distinguished from the Platinum Plus Suites, which are those suites that are centrally located. The remaining Private Suites will tend to be located towards the corners of the East & West Stands (side-on to the action), or in the South Stand (which is situated behind the posts). The suites are situated at the top of the East, West & South Middle Stands on the Hospitality Box Level (the prestigious Level 5) - the Middle Tier is the premium area to view rugby in the Principality Stadium.

Facility/Décor

The suites are completely glass-fronted, affording superb views of the hallowed turf. They are decorated to a high standard however some are more luxurious than others, due to previous refurbishments carried out by annual box-holders. Most offer a rectangle dining table to seat 12 guests. There is a private bar in each suite.

Private Suites

Private suites are available for 12 guests, up to a maximum of 16 guests. There are a few ‘double’ boxes that can accommodate up to 32 guests.

Admission

The seats are situated on a private balcony, directly in front of the suites through a glass sliding door. Convenient access to the suites is available throughout the day. There are 12 balcony seats allocated to every suite, additional guests (up to 4 extra) will need to view the match sitting on high stools behind the glass window.

Catering

Catering consists of a three-course luncheon followed by a post-match cheeseboard.
